Dvipdfm does not use EPS. You need to teach graphics or graphicx to  
convert the compressed EPS to PDF. If you do so, you'll need to  
invoke TeX with -shell-escape to allow it to run external commands.

Since its beginning pdflatex was not able to include EPS. And surely  
it will never do. So: convert to PDF!

Add MAP file fragments to teach TeX that the font pcrr in T1 font  
encoding is PostScript based.

Seems texhash or maketexlsr either do not scan or did not scan the / 
var/tmp/texfonts branch ...

Add MAP file fragments to teach TeX that the font pcrr in T1 font  
encoding is PostScript based.

Add MAP file fragments to teach TeX that the font pplr in T1 font  
encoding is PostScript based.


Do you really have a laser printer with a CanonCX engine built-in?
